Everything you need to know about your dream session...
I'M VERY NERVOUS AND NOT SURE I'M CONFIDENT ENOUGH FOR A BOUDOIR SHOOT?
Everyone is nervous, that is normal! We do understand how anxious you might feel and we will take your session at your pace. We promise that as soon as you arrive and start the pampering process you’ll instantly forget your nerves and start having a great time and when you see your gorgeous images, it will all be worth it! Remember, our studio is a safe environment, it is your session and you are in complete control.
ALL THE WOMEN ON YOUR WEBSITE ARE GORGEOUS, ARE THEY MODELS?
You’re right, these women are utterly gorgeous! These women are also wives, mothers, Nurses, Accountants, Legal Secretaries, PA’s, Florists, Celebrants. These are everyday women who have decided they are worth celebrating!
Every age, shape, size and colour is model worthy and you will look and feel like one too. I live to show women how gorgeous they are. There is no body that I can not photograph!
I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO POSE, WILL YOU GUIDE ME ?
You do not need to know how to pose, that is our job! We will absolutely advise you on how to pose, you will be guided through every step of your session. Your session will be taken at your pace and no particular amount of time is allocated, ensuring you get the most from your photoshoot without feeling pressured or rushed.
I'D LIKE TO LOSE WEIGHT BEFORE MY PHOTOSHOOT, WHAT IS THE IDEAL SIZE?
Any size! I have heard this so many times, it is absolutely not necessary to lose any weight for us to achieve a stunning gallery of images. Body confidence and our photoshoots are for everybody and EVERY body!
WILL I HAVE A FEMALE PHOTOGRAPHER?
Most definitely, we are an all female family run business.
WILL I HAVE TO DO MY OWN HAIR AND MAKEUP?
A full and fabulous makeover is included complimentary with all of our sessions. Carrie has years of experience at some of London’s top salons as well as styling the hair and painting the faces of Super Models and Hollywood Actresses within the industry.
In Carrie’s safe hands all you have to do is select your desired look, sit back, relax and let the magic happen.
HOW MUCH RETOUCHING DO YOU DO? I STILL WANT TO LOOK LIKE ME.
Our aim is to empower women, build them with confidence and show them their beauty both inside and out. We do not believe in retouching your images into an unrecognisable version of yourself but instead through correct lighting, guided posing and professional makeup application we are able to create flawless images of the real you.
HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS DO YOU TAKE? AND DO I SELECT THE ONES I WANT?
During your photoshoot session anywhere between 200-300 photographs are taken. From these you select ten images that will be retouched for your gallery. Further images can be selected at additional costs.
I'VE SEEN CHEAPER PHOTOSHOOTS ADVERTISED ONLINE, WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE TOTO CAELO?
If you have been looking at one of the popular chain Photographic Studios then they do offer cheaper session prices. However, when you look further into this, the photographs are usually purchased separately at inflated prices. At Toto Caelo we include everything within our package, you will not find any hidden extras.
WILL MY PHOTOGRAPHS GO ONLINE?
Your comfort and privacy is my main priority, that includes you not worrying about your images going “public” I WILL NOT share your images in any way unless your give permission. This experience is all about you and you are in complete control of your photographs.
Most of our clients love to share their images with the world and help spread a message of body confidence but we do understand entirely if you’d rather keep your gallery private.
IF I NEED TO CHANGE THE DATE OF MY BOOKING IS MY DEPOSIT TRANSFERABLE?
Yes, with notice your deposit is transferrable for up to 6 months (1 time only).
Your deposit is no refundable and can not be transferred if you cancel without transferring your date or if you do not show up for your appointment without prior notice (48hour minimum).
